You're really working hard to bait and derail this thread.
No I'm certainly not. I said at the beginning I was looking forward to playing it as the scores were decent. Then I was jumped on by the usual Sony defence force because I didn't think the scores indicated their latest first party release was the second coming of Christ.

Never underestimate bitterness. There's a few in this very thread that's disappointed that it reviewed really well.

Concern about the sales is the next topic. The console warriors follow a very predictable pattern.

One guy seems decently triggered. He wants to troll, but thinks if he can act decent enough he can decently troll the "Sony defense force" and not get banned. If he's decent.

The Demon's Souls remake was outstanding. WTF are you talking about?

And are you saying Ratchet and Clank is a fad? You realize it's been a mainstay for decades now? And this looks to be the best one yet, and best looking console game to date.

Edit:
Oh, new account with 4 posts. I see. You made a burner to troll the latest AAA PS game.
Pretends to be attacked by SonyGaf incoming.

Why don't you post the usual "another win for xbox" like you do in every thread unrelated to xbox.

Nah. I made this account about 3 weeks ago but it took ages to get approved.

Unfortunately R&C won't even be a fad, you know its not really got much going for it despite the fact it looks nice.

Anyway I'll leave you guys in peace.

Good scores, maybe slightly higher than expected but not far off. The new generation Sony exclusive AAA hype factor.

I think I waited seven years for my account to be approved.

R&C being a fad is a hilarious idea. It's been an iconic PS IP for like 20 years.

Hey guys do you remember when that Demon Souls remake came out and everyone was so hyped, the game was going to be so grand and then about a week later nobody cared about it anymore?

This is another one of thoose games.
Damn is that bad?

It's literally pointless trying to express any opinion about a Sony game here that isn't along the lines of "omg best next gen game ever".

I mean he just write things when he has direct employee relates about.
He just tell the stories.
That is better than 99% of the Journous in the industry.

I have zero issues with him reporting facts like if crunch is happening etc. because as you said he always has credible sources.

My post was me memeing about how Gaf always complains about him writing those articles.

Just getting around to see these reviews. The lowest scores call the game extremely buggy, but many of the other reviews don't mention bugs at all. What's going on here?

How can someone like this demanding be an Xbox fan?
As I've said a few times I have all the consoles! My current preference is Xbox at the moment because of my online group. I hope that clears it up for you.

I wish I could say your trolling was decent. But it's not even that. It's a little lacklustre actually.

Solid B for effort thus far though. Keep it up.

This post implies the word decent means good, which is what started this whole mess as that was my intention in using the word. Where were you an hour ago when this whole charade started? You could have ended it all right then.

Look out for that 'another one' gif that he drops in the comparison topics for Xbox.
This is getting even more off topic now but I've literally never posted that gif. Or any gif. I can barely get jpegs to upload on my phone. Unless you'd care to enlighten me by finding the post? I suppose it's possible I've done it and forgotten how to post them since.

All this because you guys didn't like the word I used referring to review scores, a word I understood to mean good or competent. A word that in no way has any negative connotations.

I said I was looking forward to playing it. I wished Ratchet well, I WISHED RATCHET WELL.

I keep seeing neutral reviews saying the game has glitches and crashes, but most of the big reviewers barely touch on gameplay. They all seem to be drooling over the visual primarily.

If it was one or two guys whatever but it's more than that.

I don't think it's anything like Cyberpunk which is why it isn't reflected in many of the reviews.

Not what I wanted to hear. I just predownloaded - I think I’m committed to it just due to the graphical showcase nature of it that I’m interested in. But I legitimately don’t enjoy the 2016 game - would you say it’s at least quite better than that one? I don’t care about weapons being funny just gameplay/movement and stuff

Not bad. I'm gonna upgrade you from "lacklustre" to "somewhat lacklustre". But that's the best I can do.😆
